Today’s post is going to be very different from all the other ones. And for me, it’s going to be quite uncomfortable. Because I’m going to tell you the story of Tono Latino, and believe it or not I am an introvert and do not like talking about myself.
This is my story.
You might relate to this or not, but I didn’t use to pay attention to politics that much – and I didn’t dedicate much of my time to watch or read the news.
I had a really good job in Corporate America, a job that I absolutely loved doing.
I didn’t study political science, I didn’t study journalism or government or anything like that, I am a Colombian immigrant, naturalized citizen working in my field as a computer engineer.
Then I had a baby and left on maternity leave – I added personal vacation so I could be at home longer with my newborn baby, and I started reading a lot more news. This also happened to be 2015 when the presidential campaigns for 2016 were getting started.
